Abstract

The project reviews provisions of the proposed 2017 Florida commercial buildings energy code in order to make a determination if it meets or exceeds the IECC-2015 and ASHRAE 90.1-2013 standards. The overall result of the analysis shows that when all building types are considered, the Florida 2017 code beats ASHRAE 90.1-2013 by a minute percentage of 0.01%. As a result, one may justifiably conclude that the Florida 2017 Energy code for commercial buildings meets ASHRAE 90.1-2013 considering Florida as a whole.
